LibriVox recording of The Little Nugget, by P. G. Wodehouse. Read by Mark Nelson.
Mrs Nesta Ford, in her London hotel room, reveals to her new friend Lord Mountry that she hopes to take her son Ogden on a yachting trip proposed by Mountry, despite her ex-husband having won custody of the boy. As Mountry leaves, Cynthia Drassilis arrives with Ogden, whom she has led away from his father's country house. Mrs Ford rewards Cynthia, but soon Mr Ford's secretary, a Mr Minnick, arrives to recover the stolen child. Cynthia tries to bribe his colleague, Mrs Sheridan, but to no avail, as she believes Nesta's influence has spoiled the boy. After they have gone, Nesta reveals to Cynthia Ogden's past as the 'Little Nugget', and the repeated attempts to kidnap him made by US gangsters. Nesta wishes to call in professional help, but Cynthia persuades her she can still do it, with the help of her new fiancé, a wealthy man called Peter Burns, who she suggests can take up a post at Ogden's new school, posing as a trainee schoolmaster.

Mark Nelson and P G Wodehouse
Mark Nelson and P G Wodehouse make for an unbeatable duo in bringing laughter and other good stories to me and, I know to many others. Thank you Mr. Nelson for giving of your time and lending your wonderful voice in reading this story and many others. I am a Veteran and have had some bad times with PTSD for many years and if you could only realize how much you have been able to lift some of the burden from some sad memories, you might pat yourself on your back as I thank you from my heart. May God bless you for that.
